Photo: Vertical Construction Underway At Miami Beach’s Tallest Tower Ever

At the entrance to South Beach, vertical construction now appears to be underway at the Five Park tower, which is set to become the tallest ever in Miami Beach.

A tower crane was installed in recent months for the 44-story tower, which will rise 546 feet.

Five Park will become an “iconic landmark,” developers have said. It will have 280 residential units.

According to Mayor Dan Gelber, the adjacent 3-acre public park that was built by developers as part of an approval deal was deeded over to the city earlier this week.

Moss is building it… It will be a quality product. Just look at Brickell Flatiron, Alina Boca Raton and the many others.

… nah.. I was too busy out there chasing the “big mommas,” while you were in your tiny apartment sitting on that worn out couch hugging your boyfriend while watching reruns of “COPS” on that 25 inch screen TV of yours.

It took a while to figure out what to do with that land, but it all seems to have been worth it. I’m particularly impressed by the the developer’s heartfelt openness and respect for the immediate community’s input I’ve seen and read about. It adds so much to the value of that beautiful, forward-thinking park. Even the tower’s thoughtful placement and exceptional design feels appropriate. Congratulations, and best wishes, to all these talented and thoughtful folks.

Mainland Miami needs to follow suit and get developers to build more green space in downtown and Brickell. It’s just as important to our infrastructure as reliable transit and quality housing.

Also, better architecture considering this is by Arquitectonica, but is not a box with juxtaposed balconies. We have a better code, so what gives?

Wtf does the Everglades have to do with parks downtown?

Simple.. the Everglades is very near Miami and its thousands of acres big. You can literally be there for weeks and never see a stop light or a house. A person could go there and have the time of their life. Parks in downtown Miami is a joke to this place.

But you wouldn’t know that because you’ve never been there.

the Everglades is 1 hr + from Miami. I don’t think you go to the Everglades to take your dog for a walk.

Poor little doggy, it needs more places to piss and shit because green spaces downtown and Brickell where they can do it is not enough for them in my opinion.

Yes, beautiful….but the same amount of billions should be spent on building better roads, sidewalks, and apartments/condominiums which will be not flooded during many days of the year.

💯 but this is private development from profit seeking developers. They’re not looking to do the things you mention with their funds. The only win I see here is it took a lot of effort to not get another waterfront park privatized. However as we all know these units will be mostly owned by people hiding money looted from Eastern Europe and South America and there will be no affordable housing units. This general trend in high end housing development only means the park will be filled with homeless people in under 1 week and people will become shut-ins very quickly except for when they’re driving around the already overburdened 5th & Alton Intersection.

Plus, while Ocean Ave is rife with violent crime, there’s a more compelling, unmentioned reason to shut it all down and that is that these clubs, 3-4 stories tall, most of them are occupying space that could host multi billion dollar skyscapers. As if South Beach wasn’t crowded enough. Oh and skyscrapers are inherently less energy efficient per square foot than buildings 10 stories or less. No solar panels mandated on a skyscraper? That’s a crime against opportunity.

And here again we see some bloke with a twice a month paying job telling these billionaire developers what they need to do with their money.

Said it before and will say it again: Love the park, like the tower, but it’s too freakin’ high, man.

All the renderings obscure or downplay the extent to which this looming monstrosity is going to look freakishly out of scale with its surroundings when it’s done. At 546 feet it’s nearly 200 feat taller than the Waverly building in front of it! They should’ve kept it no higher than 400 feet.

This was Levine’s legacy to South Beach. He wanted to turn it into Hong Kong. This building will give new meaning to the term 5:00 shadow. Wait until you see the size of the one it will cast over South Beach at around that time every day.

Yeah man, I’ll surely be bugged out at the height of it.. but I think I’ll get over it after a night of partying South Beach.
